I though I would expand a little bit on how to assemble the game. I’ll provide 4 alternatives from the cheapest/easiest to fanciest/hardest methods. The print and play file is made in such a way that the front of cards are on odd pages and the corresponding back of the cards are on the following even page.

Alternative A (No backs):

Components needed:
- 13 sheets of cardstock (8.5”X11” and 110 pounds)

1) Print the odd pages of the file single-sided on the cardstock sheets
2) Cut along the edges

Alternative B:

Components needed:
- 26 sheets of cardstock (8.5”X11” and 110 pounds)
- 110 standard card sleeves (as used normally for Magic the Gathering)

1) Print the file single-sided on the cardstock sheets
2) Cut along the edges
3) Sleeve together the front and back of each card

Alternative C:

Components needed:
- 13 sheets of cardstock (8.5”X11” and 110 pounds)
- 13 sheets of full page sticker paper (8.5”X11” I used Avery)
- Optionally 110 standard card sleeves

1) Print the odd pages on the sticker paper
2) Print the even pages on the cardstock sheets
3) Cut along the edges
4) Stick the front of the cards on the corresponding back
5) Optionally, sleeve the cards

Alternative D:

Components needed:
- 13 sheets of cardstock (8.5”X11” and 110 pounds)
- A very good printer that can print double sided or align the printing perfectly
- Optionally 110 standard card sleeves

1) Print the odd pages on the cardstock
2) Print the even pages on the back of the same sheets
3) Cut along the edges
4) Optionally, sleeve the cards

For all alternatives, I suggest buying a Chinese takeout box (I found mine at Michael’s craft store) and stick, on the front of it, the Box sticker provided as a separate file here on BGG.


Edit: Added the great suggestion of FNH1 as Alternative A.

It looks like you dont need to print the card backas at all, you could also just print the 13 pages of card fronts and leave the backs blank, and not bother with sleeves. I think that's what I'll be doing.

Love that art work BTW!

You are right. The back was just included to be prettier and to help separate the different type of cards. However, I would suggest to print 1 pages of the backs (for example page 16) and include it as another summary card. It's helpful while playing the game. I'll add your suggestion as another Alternative. Thanks!
